Rosewill ARC-450, ARC Series 450W Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The good:
1- After sending Newegg a "bogus" issue-review (yes I test e-retailers) about this power supply on the last day of their return policy I got an e-mail letting me know Newegg would provide a shipping label for me to return it.
2- NO coil whine
3- Fan is quiet
4- Stable voltages
5- No system crashes
6- 80 Plus Bronze
7- Although used daily no issues at all
8- Included were five 4" zip ties
9- Braided cabling is long enough for any pc case

Cons: Only one issue:
This is my **final** Newegg review (please see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: This power supply is a great product @ a reasonable price. It is quiet, efficient, adequate length braided cabling and provides stable power. Yes, this is my last Newegg review; due to the fact I have been "hand picked" by a large major e-retailer to participate in their newly formed review program, so it would be a conflict of interest to continue posting here.

Windows 10 Home - 64-bit
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Final Update 09/28/2015

This review is from: Windows 10 Home - 64-bit

Pros: It was easy to remove

Cons: A multitude of security holes and Edge web browser crashes (see other thoughts)...Win10 is a huge personal identity gathering device. Hey, Microsoft what part of a desktop does not need an "apps" window did you not understand from masses who said "NO" to them on a desktop pc??? Apps = smart phone/tablet

Other Thoughts: My wife was using our projector & downloaded some site that took total control of Edge browser & installed massive amounts of spam-ware although Win10 firewall & Win10 "defender" were on. Also, all security settings on Edge were on too. I agree with another post: for those who are tech savy it is time to walk away from Microsoft. Win10 is a CPU/RAM hog (looking @ approx. 2 GB RAM used up with all essential programs installed & really bogs down your CPU.) When you compare Win10 x64 to Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS x64 Ubuntu uses a mere approx. 786 MB of RAM with lots of programs installed and very little of your CPU resources. There was a lot of hype before official release of Win10, so I had to try it & do an "unbiased" comparison between it & Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS x64. After first hand seeing ALL the garbage that must be disabled to ensure my privacy, Edge crashes, sites able to find holes in OS/Edge browser and what happened while my wife was surfing the Net I deem Win10: Windows Vista ver. 2.0... I removed Win10 from our projector setup & installed Ubuntu 14.04.3 in it and returned the 3-d glasses I purchased (latest Ubuntu-Nvidia driver does not support 3-d...yet) I placed the DVD i wasted burning off Win10 where it belongs: in the trash. I have lowered my rating to a 2 egger. I know all the MS drones will not like the truth of this final review. One poster said he liked all "uneducated ppl/negative reviews." You can toss this one that pile. FYI dude it is spelled "Linux" in case you can spell google to research it. :) IF you are using Win7 I'd keep it til MS stops support of it!

MSI N750-1GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Installing Nvidia 352.41 Driver-Ubuntu 14.04 09/19/2015

This review is from: MSI N750-1GD5/OC G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Good:
1- Card is running fine I just wanted to see what MSI had to offer on my "bogus" BSOD issue :) Yeah I test ALL manufacturers' tech support!
2- As it has been posted many times over: price vs performance the GTX 750 can not be beat
3- W/10 drivers work fine AND Nvidia recently released a NEW Linux driver, which is very very close in graphics quality/FSP speeds of MS (See other thoughts)
4- Silent cooling fan
5- Maximum temp I have seen is 44C...ildes @ approx. 28C

Cons: The stinkin bad:
1- MSI's reply on this site to my "bogus" issue left out one BIG solution: clearing your motherboard BIOS & doing a clean install of Nvidia driver
2- Like to see a 2 GB DDR5 256 bit w/ 55 max power draw @ same price LOL

Other Thoughts: Currently the latest stable Nvidia driver for Ubuntu 14.04 (Linux) is version 352.41 and here is how to install it via terminal commands one at a time assuming you are already using a Nvidia card:

sudo apt-get remove nvidia*
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-settings

Close terminal & re-boot pc

This is best offering from Nvidia as of yet for Ubuntu 14.04 (Linux) and the gap between graphics quality & FPS speed is dwindling between Linux & MS. This is a great card & I shall only update this review as newer Nvidia-Linux drivers become available. Feel free to copy n paste the terminal commands from this review.

This is best offering from Nvidia as of yet for Ubuntu 14.04 (Linux)
